ANSWERS AND EXPLANATIONS




A) True

This answer is incorrect.


Many factors can significantly interfere with the accuracy of nerve conduction studies and EMGs. Errors may arise due to the EMG machine, the electrodes, the stimulator, the room in which the study is being performed, or even the level of skill of the person performing the exam. Technical factors should always be considered as a potential source of error in electrodiagnostic studies.  (See References)
